Write algorithms and program in the new field of quantum computing.
This book covers major topics such as the physical components of a
quantum computer: qubits, entanglement, logic gates, circuits, and
how they differ from a traditional computer. Also, Practical
Quantum Computing for Developers discusses quantum computing in the
cloud using IBM Q Experience including: the composer, quantum
scores, experiments, circuits, simulators, real quantum devices,
and more. You'll be able to run experiments in the cloud on a real
quantum device. Furthermore, this book shows you how to do quantum
programming using the QISKit (Quantum Information Software Kit),
Python SDK, and other APIs such as QASM (Quantum Assembly). You'll
learn to write code using these languages and execute it against
simulators (local or remote) or a real quantum computer provided by
IBM's Q Experience. Finally, you'll learn the current quantum
algorithms for entanglement, random number generation, linear
search, integer factorization, and others. You'll peak inside the
inner workings of the Bell states for entanglement, Grover's
algorithm for linear search, Shor's algorithm for integer
factorization, and other algorithms in the fields of optimization,
and more. Along the way you'll also cover game theory with the
Magic Square, an example of quantum pseudo-telepathy where parties
sharing entangled states can be observed to have some kind of
communication between them. In this game Alice and Bob play against
a referee. Quantum mechanics allows Alice and Bob to always win! By
the end of this book, you will understand how this emerging
technology provides massive parallelism and significant
computational speedups over classical computers, and will be
prepared to program quantum computers which are expected to replace
traditional computers in the data center. What You Will Learn Use
the Q Experience Composer, the first-of-its-kind web console to
create visual programs/experiments and submit them to a quantum
simulator or real device on the cloud Run programs remotely using
the Q Experience REST API Write algorithms that provide superior
performance over their classical counterparts Build a Node.js REST
client for authenticating, listing remote devices, querying
information about quantum processors, and listing or running
experiments remotely in the cloud Create a quantum number
generator: The quintessential coin flip with a quantum twist
Discover quantum teleportation: This algorithm demonstrates how the
exact state of a qubit (quantum information) can be transmitted
from one location to another, with the help of classical
communication and quantum entanglement between the sender and
receiver Peek into single qubit operations with the classic game of
Battleships with a quantum twist Handle the counterfeit coin
problem: a classic puzzle that consists of finding a counterfeit
coin in a beam balance among eight coins in only two turns Who This
